Before reviewing the links, students should find their effective Academic Catalog Year. When clicking any links referenced below that take students to the Academic Catalog Year pages, they should be mindful of which Academic Catalog year is displayed.

  • RHET 105 (or an alternative Composition I sequence) is taken either in the first or second semester of the first year, according to the student's UIN (Spring if your UIN is Odd). General Education elective is taken the other semester. Composition I guidelines can be found at under Written Communication Requirement.
  • The combination of MSE 307 and MSE 308 satisfies the general education advanced composition requirement.
  • MSE 183 is an optional course highly recommended for freshmen, who may use it to help meet free elective requirements.
  • The replacement of IE 300 with STAT 400 is not allowed for students in the Biomaterials Area unless one of their biomaterials area topical lectures and one of their topical lectures outside the biomaterials area are deemed by the Accreditation Board for Engineering and Technology (ABET) to be an engineering course. The extra hour of credit for STAT 400 may be used to help meet free elective requirements.
